Easy wins by Alabama and Oregon kept them in the top two spots of the Coaches' Poll, but there was plenty of other shakeups after a crazy college football weekend.
When you put a shellacking on the then-No. 11 team in the country or put up 70 points in a win, your spots at the top of the rankings are probably pretty safe. Alabama and Oregon's are, with both staying atop the latest Coaches' Poll after impressive outings this weekend.
Alabama welcomed Mississippi St. to Tuscaloosa on Saturday and beat them down 38-7, taking a 24-0 halftime lead to remove any doubt early on. Oregon whacked Colorado, 70-14, putting up all those points in the first three quarters before completely shutting down their offensive machine.
Former No. 3 Florida fell to eighth after losing to Georgia over the weekend. Kansas St., Notre Dame and LSU fill out the top five before Georgia checks in at No. 6.
Despite defeating Oregon St., Washington is still just 4-4 and unsurprisingly did not garner a single vote in the poll. The Beavers did fall four spots to No. 13 after suffering their first loss of the season in Seattle, though.
